Aurora Borealis

This lovely necklace was made on my Alaska bead cruise with Nancy Cain.  We learned how to make the gorgeous beaded beads with perfect tension.  Briolettes accent the piece with some netted work too.  Thank you, Nancy!

Reverse Magic Bracelet

Look carefully!  You are not seeing double but are looking at a reversible bracelet.  One side has pearls and the other has crystals.  How clever!
Another right angle weave basic core bracelet that has been embellished to the hilt!


A right angle weave (RAW) bracelet pattern by Marcia DeCoster. This bracelet was made on a bead cruise to Alaska.  Marcia was one of the instructors teaching this beautiful bracelet which includes pearls and crystals.  Thank you Marcia!

Purple lariat

I saw a similar lariat and got inspired by the right angle weave (RAW) of this design.  It is a triangular RAW embellished with drop beads.  The pendant hangs nicely with an amethyst bead in a brick stitch design highlighted with crystals.

Sparkling Bracelet

 A beautiful brick stitched bracelet.  I love the geometrical design and colors in the design.
